Hi guys, I just picked up a pair of Definitive Technology AW6500 outdoor speakers. I have a question about the best way to mount these. My house is a two story, all brick, with a patio off the back of the house and a deck area next to the patio that extends from the back corner of the house off to the side.
I'm currently considering a few ways to mount the speakers and I'm wondering which you think would be best becuase they all seem to have some potential issues.
Here is what I am considering:
1. Mount speakers under soffit - Will they be too high (20+ feet) to provide good sound? Wiring a volume knob also becomes more difficult with this option.
2. Mount speakers mid-way up the back wall - Will this look weird and will lack of weather protection be an issue?
3. Mount speakers on deck - Lack of weather protection and speaker direction could be an issue. I have also heard that the AW6500's work better when there is a solid surface behind them.
4. Mount speakers on posts in back landscaping area - Will they be too low for good soound quality and also no weather protection.
Just looking for some thoughts. Thanks!
